Doonesbury Gay/Straight Storyline

Trudeau has B.D. (straight) visiting Mark (gay) for a few days, and it's got both of them out of their comfort zones. Not sure how long the story line will run, but seems to begin here.

Trudeau's been doing gay/straight storylines since the mid-1970s when Joanie Caucus had a crush on fellow law student Andy Lippincott. That was followed through to Andy's eventual AIDS death in the 1990s (I think). Trudeau can follow a story arc like nobody's business. IMHO, he's always funny without trivializing his topic - I know many disagree on the "funny" part.

Though I'm generally in-line with his politics, I always think Trudeau is funniest when he's less agenda-driven. The recent strips on BD's rehab have been the most interesting for a while.

Thanks for reading, Upstate.

I've always thought that BD was unredeemable, but dang it if he hasn't changed my mind lately.
